Project is part of a multi-billion-dollar pipeline safety program


WHAT:                On July 10, at 9 a.m., SoCalGas will begin a natural gas pipeline replacement project along Highway 1 in the city of Lompoc in Santa Barbara County. This is part of a larger San Luis Obispo County/Lompoc project that began earlier this spring.

WHERE:             During construction, one northbound and one southbound lane on Highway 1 near the Santa Ynez River – north of the Lompoc Airport – will close. Lane closures will be in effect on Highway 1 from the Santa Ynez River to George Miller Drive. Lane closures will be in effect the following work hours and days:

                    ·       9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday;

·       8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Thursday nights; and,

·       9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Fridays.

WHEN:                Work begins on July 10 and will continue through October.

NOTE:                 This natural gas pipeline replacement project is part of SoCalGas’ Pipeline Safety Enhancement Plan (PSEP), a multi-billion-dollar program that tests and updates the natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Southern California. SoCalGas’ five-year capital plan includes $6 billion in infrastructure investments, including approximately $1.2 billion this year for improvements to distribution, transmission and storage systems and for pipeline safety.
